Pink October 2020
“I’m Jo Penson and I am a mammographer working at Hereford and Worcester Breast Screening Service. The service also covers the symptomatic work for Worcestershire Acute Hospitals Trust.
I also undertake the role of Health Promotion alongside my colleague Bryony. This involves engaging with the GP Practices throughout our screening area of Herefordshire and Worcestershire and attending local events to promote breast screening and breast awareness.
We have worked with the Breast Care Nurses and the South Worcestershire Community Learning Disability Nurses to hold a ‘My Breasts and Me’ event at The Worcestershire Breast Unit Haven.
Bryony and I have also joined WBUH on several Wear it Pink Days on their stand in the foyer at Worcestershire Royal Hospital, at other fundraising events and at local community events.”
